you keep revisiting old ‘solved’ puzzles at the building and the game always reminds what you have done with them, classy!, this game doesn’t miss a thing, only voice over and it would have been over-over the top.

I’ve just made it to the center of the dreamscape, and I’m beginning to understand why each chapter takes so long to make. Every screen is simply gorgeous. I can’t imagine how much care was put into creating each scene. If a game could qualify as visual art, surely this is it.

Me too.  Chapter 6 for everybody!...er,

I mean great game and funny too.  I can’t put down and I love not having to use a walkthrough.

I sense a variation on a puzzle from an earlier release coming up.  Nice.

We did graded reviews for all episodes back when TDM started. We changed policies for new games a few years ago, but too late to change course for the ones already started. (Kentucky Route Zero is another example.)

On chapter 3 at the moment. It is one of those games that u do not expect much and then are positively surprised when u decide to try it. Similar to Dead Synchronicity in that regard, I knew about both games when they were released but did not decide to buy them for some reason. Dead synchronicity was adventure game of the yeat for me and I think that Dream machine could become that too (have to finish it before I can grade it). Love the graphical style and the story is interesting. So yeah, it is always nice when a game positively surprises you.

Thanks Jackal!

will it get a total score, for at least competing at the next aggies as a full game?
